WINCHESTER PATTERN BOARD
Selecting the Right Choke Tube To get the most out of your ammunition, choosing the right choke is critical. Following are the optimal distances for each main type of choke used by hunters and recreational shooters today. Skeet – Just slightly tighter than cylinder bore, skeet choke tubes are made to get a quick spread on shot. The ideal range for this choke constriction is 15 to 25 yards. Improved Cylinder – The ideal choke to use with Winchester Steel Shot Waterfowl products. Modified – Modified choke tubes are a good general choke size to use when not sure whether shots will be close or far. Their ideal pattern is found at 30 to 40 yards. Improved Modified – Improved Modified chokes offer little per- formance difference over Modified and Full but can offer a sweet spot out between 45 to 55 yards. Full – For delivering maximum patterns at distance, go with the full choke, which depending on the load, can deliver an ideal range between 55 to 65 yards.
